    A Sidekick For When Life Happens with Lindsey Michaelides, Strongsuit

    On this episode, Elio interviews Lindsey Michaelides, CO-founder, and CEO of Strongsuit. Strongsuit partners with you to anticipate, research, and clear home and personal to-do lists so that you can keep excelling at work without sacrificing your life. What started as a project at McKinsey & Company to stop a leaky pipeline of high-performance female employees sparked the insight that created a company; the demands of work are costing us at home, and it's not a female problem. It is a dual-career household problem. Lindsey shares her story of why she founded Strongsuit, how life-outsourcing is becoming a viable solution for some, and what's next for the company.

    Conversational AI: Turning Data Into Intelligence with Ganesh Gandhieswaran

    Conversational AI: Turning Data Into Intelligence with Ganesh Gandhieswaran

    On this episode, Elio interviews Ganesh Gandhieswaran, CEO and Co-Founder of ConverSight. ConverSight is on a mission to redefine the way we interact with data. Data is everywhere but data alone is not a predictor of success. Data that can be reliably converted into intelligence and insights is the key.

    However, existing data intelligence platforms are missing a key component of how humans naturally communicate insights and that's through conversations. Ganesh breaks down ConverSight's approach to helping their clients gather data, convert the data into intelligence, and how through conversational AI they are increasing their customers' utilization of the insights gleaned from the data into decision-making.
